Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

How long do typical low beam headlights last? Is there any logical reason why one runs out before the other? In other words, should I replace both my front headlights while I am at it?

Headlights are powered by a multitude of different output bulbs.

Some are very temperamental and fragile, so if you touch the
bulb, it will pop from the oil that your fingers leaves behind.

If you are replacing one bulb only, then you should be good.
Do not change the other bulb, as it should last for a very long
time. If your bulbs are popping, then you may have a fuse, or
amperage issue.

My headlights went out dont know what the problem is low beam dont work high beams works


it may be the dimmer switch located on the base of the steering colume that is not working on the low beam side.also the headlights themselves may need changing if the low beam filament is burnt out and you didn`t realize one was burnt out then the other one burnt out.if that`s not the case then it could be a bad connection at the plug connector for the low beam or for some reason power is lost between the switch and the headlight.you don`t say if this has day time running lights,if it does then it could be the drl relay that is bad.

Both of my low beams just stopped working at once. High beams work fine, and bulbs seem to be good. We've replaced the fuses also, and it hasn't worked. what would cause the low beams to both just quit...


The headlight relay has probably failed. This relay is in the underhood fuse box. There are typically two of the same relays in there, so you can swap the low-beam relay for the high-beam relay to verify the problem before you shell out $30 for new relay.

Low beam headlight will not come on but high beams work. Have been told tha the bulbs are good and they were replaced last month.


I would start at the fuse or relay, typically there is a separate fuse/relay for low and high beams. If that checks out I would look at the light switch, also check to see that there is power at the socket and that the lights are properly grounded.

2004 jetta headlights going out when switching low/high beams


There is no recall regarding the headlights on that vehicle.

What typically happens is the wiring inside the light housing melts and the bare wires randomly touch each other.

You can verify this by taking one of the plastic covers off the back of a headlamp housing and checking out the three wire harness inside. It is extremely common for this to occur on that vehicle.
The wiring can be repaired, though difficult without removing the lamp.
If you wish to replace the wiring with factory replacement parts, there is no service parts for the lamp, you must replace the entire housing unfortunately. For this reason most people just repair the melted wires.

Cannot adjust low and high beam headlights separatlyLexus LS 430


Shine your head lights on a wall either in your garage or outside wall and re-adjust your head light back to were you think you had them last. Use the high beam and the low beam settings and you will be able to beam the light were you think they should be. Common problem with most new vehicles now days, low beams don't seem to be bright enough.

!997 Chevrolet S10 headlight problem


ya know it kinda sounds like the headlight switch that switches from high beam to low beam has a bad contact. You don't have one of those 4-beam modules that turn on all 4 lights on high beam do you? that thing screwed my whole headlight system up, I ended up throwing it in the trash.

I have the chiltons and haynes manual, I'm sure between the two we'll find a good diagram. I gotta get my youngin to open house at school, but I'll pull the books out and send you the wiring diagram.

Low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do


Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.
